Yup. Me being me, no offense meant and none taken
The power is lowered on the T's by simply fusing a higher end part at a locked/lowered cycle count and charging more for them. The rating they give is worse case scenario and something we may never face in reality. If it's a 45W part, they mean the COOLER must be able to collect 45W's of heat, not that it sucks that much juice. Keep in mind that Watt's is a measure of work for both ends and not just a measure of electrical power. The point being is that if you want a 22W CPU, it's more than likely slapping you in the face right now and asking you to buy it. The 2120 I have shoved in an iTX case isn't pulling 65W or even near my calculations of needing more than a 18W HS/F cooler in order to deal with the heat. Yes, if I pulled that CPU out and put it in the validation oven-of-hell back at Intel, it wouldn't pass with my expectations as the log tells me...but it passes in real live day after day as a consumer.
Me being me, I ramble...so the point is that if you want a low power CPU, you pick a board it's to go in that will let you undervolt and underclock it without spending more money on that very same unit with ratings that somehow seem more appealing. If we're here in a forum talking about it, then we have the open conversation available that will tell you to clock it down for the same thing you actually desire instead of waiting on Intel to do this for you. That's Mac mentality IMO. Every update for those type were due to one CPU upgrade (Ivy) and claimed it's a whole new world. As a PC builder, we can call bullshit.
It's worth noting that Ivy sucks when it comes to real thermal qualities though. It may be 22nm, but it's hotter than Sandy due to the selection of non-sliver TIM inside the nickle and copper cap. Silver is expensive, but I'm very sorry to see them move from it for the direct contact material from the core to the cap in order to cut manufacturing costs. It's a known issue but further clouds this "wattage" issue.
i.g. The 2120T with the current compound would be thermally equal to the 2120 using the silver, not lesser, and would hold a lower processing CPU for a lot more money. Add in actual iGPU usage and I see a real problem with this move.
